Post Harry Potter: Wizards Unite AR app, akin to 'Pokemon Go', to be released in 2018

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment - the company's video games branch - and the newly-created Portkey Games will reportedly be releasing the first augmented reality Harry Potter-themed game called "Harry Potter: Wizards Unite," sometime in 2018.

Simply put, this game will be the 'Pokemon Go' app and digital version of the Wizarding World.




Quote:
The idea is that it would let players virtually immerse themselves in Rowling’s magical world, overlaid on their real-world surroundings via smartphones.
UPDATE: Warner Bros. has confirmed that a series of web games from Portkey Games will be coming out soon.



Niantic, Inc. and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced the development of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, an augmented reality (AR) mobile game inspired by J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. Published by Niantic and co-developed by Niantic and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, under the Portkey Games label, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will use state-of-the-art augmented reality mobile technology to put magic in the hands of aspiring wizards and witches worldwide.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will reveal that magic is all around us, and allow players to be a part of Harry Potter's rich world, through Niantic’s AR + real-world mobile game platform and the franchise expertise of WB Games San Francisco’s development and publishing team. By exploring real-world neighborhoods and cities across the globe, players will go on adventures, learn and cast spells, discover mysterious artifacts, and encounter legendary beasts and iconic characters.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is part of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s Portkey Games, a new games label dedicated to creating video game and mobile experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.

“At Niantic, our goal is to leverage technology to create real world experiences that help people to discover the wonderful, and often magical parts of the world around them,” said John Hanke, founder and CEO of Niantic, Inc. “The beloved Harry Potter stories have captured imaginations worldwide for more than 20 years and soon we’ll turn the fantasy into augmented reality, allowing fans and their friends to become wizards and witches.”

“With this game, we are allowing the passionate, worldwide fan base to experience J.K. Rowling’s deeply powerful and imaginative universe in a new, truly immersive way,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “It is wonderful to have Niantic’s remarkable augmented reality expertise as we develop this incredibly rich wizarding world for players to explore in their everyday lives.”

Additional details for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be announced in 2018.

I am cautiously optimistic because Niantic has proven that they are not the best at managing a game that comes with a HUGE fan-base, but I hope all their financial success with Pokemon Go has allowed them to beef up their support team and their servers to better serve the community of players.

i hope we get to do more than just run after creatures because that gets pretty old really quickly . also given environmental conditions where players cant always go out to play because of inclement weather or geographic disadvantages (not everybody lives in downtown yknow) i hope the game developers will create alternatives where Potterheads can still do what needs to be done just in another way.
